KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 9/2/2013


The midsize sedan market is about the toughest segment in the industry – led by the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord – so if you're coming to play, you'd best bring your A-game. With the 2014 Altima, Nissan has done just that, earning it our praise as one of the 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 for 2014. Not only has the automaker maintained the cool look and sports-car-like handling that made the original Altima such a success, they've done so while thoroughly modernizing the Altima in ways crucial to younger buyers. A new Apps-based music and navigation system spearheads the effort, as do a 38-mpg fuel economy rating (2.5 model) and premium materials throughout the handsome cabin. Nissan has done a masterful job making complex audio and navigation systems easy to operate and understand – something both old and young will appreciate.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you like choice, the 2014 Nissan Altima delivers a broad range of models, features and engines including an available V6. Impressive fuel economy on the 4-cylinder model will likely win over most buyers, as will the very affordable Navigation and Technology packages.

You May Not Like This Car If...

While the Altima offers a lot of great features, it is outgunned by more lavish (and expensive) offerings from Kia, Hyundai and Chevrolet. Those seeking a hybrid or diesel option will need to shop elsewhere.

What's New for 2014

The big news for the 2014 Nissan Altima is the addition of the latest version of NissanConnect, an apps-driven infotainment system for iPhone and Android smartphones. The system allows connectivity to such apps as Facebook, iHeartRadio, Pandora and Online Search powered by Google. Hands-free text messaging is also included.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Nissan's 2014 Altima may be the best driving family sedan the company has ever produced, thanks in part to the advanced multi-link rear suspension and what is arguably the industry's best continuously-variable automatic transmission. Nissan engineers benchmarked such premium sedans as the Audi A4 and BMW 3 Series when designing the Altima and the results speak for themselves. The Altima is nimble and light in around-town driving, yet sufficiently aggressive in tight turns as to satisfy the most demanding enthusiast. So long as the road surface remains smooth, so does the Altima's ride, but over rough patches the taut suspension can fell a bit harsh. The 3.5-liter V6 is strong, but the massaged 2.5-liter four is more than adequate – Nissan clocks it at 0-60 mph in 7.1 seconds – at least for light loads and level roads. The unique multifunction rearview camera performed its lookout jobs well, and the NASA-inspired seats proved as fatigue-reducing as claimed.

Favorite Features

EASY FILL TIRE ALERT
The Nissan Altima's tire pressure monitoring system does more than simply providing individual tire-pressure information. When adding air to any tire, the hazard lamps flash to tell you the system is working, then the horn beeps to let you know when you have reached the correct pressure.

MULTIFUNCTION REARVIEW CAMERA
Part of an available Technology Package, the Altima's rearview camera provides not just the usual what's-behind-me view when reversing, but also Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Moving Object Detection, the latter two firsts in this segment.
